A Better Region 8: Way to go Red Wolves!

ABR8.jpg ABR8.jpg

Way to go Red Wolves! The Arkansas State football team will make an appearance in the New Orleans Bowl December 19th. It’s an incredible accomplishment for the team and for head coach Blake Anderson.

Think about it, it wasn't that long ago that we were all talking about the fact that the Red Wolves had 5 coaches in 5 years and how resilient this team is.  Through all that change, they kept winning.

Now the Red Wolves are feeling the impact of a true leader who is dedicated to them. Coach Anderson is in his second winning season and is now taking the team to their second bowl game since he took the job. That's what happens when you mix a great coach with talented players. 

I also commend A-State Athletic Director Terry Mohajir for supporting his head coach and the hard working players on the team. But with success, comes demand. We know all too well that when the Red Wolves are doing well, the college football world keeps an eye on our head coach. It's my hope that coach Anderson sticks around a while because the future of Red Wolves football is bright. 

If you can make the trip to New Orleans on December 19th, I encourage you to go. These Red Wolves support Region 8. Let’s support them. Buy your tickets from the ASU box office and go to the game. For those of you who have been to New Orleans before, we know how fun it is!

Let’s go bowling and support our Red Wolves! It’ll make this A Better Region 8.
